Officially, the synopsis of the film is as follows;

[quote]”The X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days of Future Past. The characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from X-Men: First Class in a battle that must change the past – to save their future.”[/quote]

New Wolverine film titled ‘The Wolverine’

Darren Aronofsky’s new Wolverine film has been given the official title The Wolverine. The director recently spoke to HitFix and along with divulging the film’s title, said the new production won’t actually be a direct sequel to 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Hugh Jackman will reprise his role as the titular character but the film will be a “one-off” statement, and that The Wolverine will not be a sequel in the “conventional sense”.

Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects) is writing the project and Slashfilm rumours point to the following plotline;

Based on the Chris Claremeont/Frank Miller mini-series from 1982, Logan (Wolverine) is in the midst of a romance with a Japanese woman who is married to another man. To win her hand, he must literally battle her samurai-filled family.

An interesting turn and one that has us excited for the project. A gritty, less comic adaptation of a comic book … it’s worked before.
